1. State the Centers for Disease Control
   and Prevention’s definitions and criteria
   of Catheter-associated Urinary Tract
   Infection (CAUTI) and Central Line-
   associated Bloodstream Infection
2. Correctly identify CAUTI and CLABSI as
   applied to case studies
3. State the correct method to identify
   denominators for CAUTI and CLABSI
   rate calculations.

       Major: Urinary Tract Infection
        – Symptomatic UTI (SUTI)
        – Asymptomatic Bacteremic UTI
        – Other UTI (OUTI)

CAUTI= UTI where an indwellling urinary catheter
  was in place in the 48 hours prior to infection
A UTI when an indwellling urinary catheter
 was in place in the 48 hours prior to
 infection onset
*Note: There is no minimum period of time
  that the catheter must be in place I norder
  for the UTI to be considered catheter-
*Note: SUTI 1b and 2b and Other UTI cannot
  be catheter-associated.
  Indwelling Catheter
A drainage tube that is inserted
into the urinary bladder through the
urethra, is left in place, and is
connected to a closed collection
system; also called a Foley
catheter; does not include:
– straight in and out catheters
– Suprapubic catheters
– Nephrostomy tubes
CAUTI Denominator Data

CAUTIs are attributed to patient
# indwelling urinary catheter days/
For urinary catheter device
utilization: # patient days/unit
          48 Hour Rule
If a CAUTI develops within 48
hours of transfer from one inpatient
location to another in the same
facility, the infection is attributed to
the transferring location.

This rule applies to CLABSI surveillance also.

    Infections (CLABSI) Module
  250,000 CLABSIs occur in the
  United States each year1
  Most bloodstream infections are
  associated with the presence of a
  central line or umbilical catheter (in
  neonates) at the time of or before
  the onset of the infection

  each CLABSI1

    (i.e., is a positive BC)
          Determining “sameness”
             of two organisms
If the common skin contaminant from one culture is
identified to both genus and species level (e.g., S.
epidermidis) and the companion culture identifies only the
genus with or without other attributes (in this example,
coagulase-negative staphylococci), then it is assumed that
the organisms are the same.

Report the genus/species to NHSN, i.e., in this example,
report S. epidermidis. See other examples below:
           Determining “sameness”
              of two organisms
If common skin contaminant
organisms are speciated (e.g.,
both are B. cereus), but no
antibiograms are done, or they
are done for only one of the
isolates, it is assumed that the
organisms are the same.
    Determining “sameness” of
      two organisms (cont.)
If the common skin contaminants from the cultures
have antibiograms that are different for two or more
antimicrobial agents, it is assumed that the
organisms are not the same.

             Collecting Blood Culture
Ideally, blood specimens for culture should
be obtained from two to four blood draws
from separate venipuncture sites (e.g., right
and left antecubital veins), not through a
vascular catheter.
These blood draws should be performed simultaneously or
over a short period of time (i.e., within a few hours).

If your facility does not currently obtain specimens using
this technique, you may still report BSIs using the NHSN
criteria, but you should work with appropriate personnel to
facilitate better specimen collection practices for blood

inflammation and there is no other
documented infection
         Is there a BSI? If so, what type?
           – Yes. LCBI
           – Criterion 1
                • Pathogen cultured from 1 or more blood
Case 6            cultures
         If so, which line should the BSI be attributed to?
           – If the tip of the midline catheter does not end in
             one of the great vessels or at or in the heart, then
             it is not considered a central line. Therefore the
             CLABSI would be attributed to the subclavian line.
             If two central lines are in place, and If unable to
             identify one line as source, attribute to the oldest
             line. If both central lines were inserted at the
             same time, attribute to the one with the highest
             risk i.e. temporary vs. tunneled, femoral vs
             subclavian, etc.
           Case 6
What unit should be indicated for
the Location of Device Insertion
– The Emergency Department.
  However, this field is optional.
  CLABSI will be attributed to the
  ICU since ED is not an inpatient
  location and no denominator data
  are collected there.
                Case 7
Day 1: One-day-old twin male infant admitted
and emergently transferred to Neonatal
Intensive Care Unit. Vented in isolette during
transport. Peripheral IV in scalp, IV fluid at
1cc/hr with Prostin (0.05mcg/kg/min) started
prior to transport, and umbilical catheter
inserted upon admission to NICU.
Neonatal History: Gestational age-term
infant, birth wt. 1810 grams, Apgars 8 & 9.
A cardiac echocardiogram showed
transposition of the great vessels of the
                    Case 7
Day 3: Repair of Patent Ductus Arteriosus and Atrial
Septal Defect performed; later that day the umbilical
catheter site was noted to be slightly red.
Day 4: umbilical catheter site remained slightly red
and a low grade temperature developed.
Day 5: the umbilical line was pulled, 1 blood culture
was drawn and the umbilical catheter tip was sent for
Day 6: continued elevated temp of 38.1° and
antibiotics were started.
Day 7: the culture and umbilical catheter tip were
both positive for Aerococcus sp. Antibiotics adjusted
as needed for coverage. Patient clinically improving.
                 Case 7

• Does this patient have an HAI?
• If so, what type? Criteria?
    • No. Because the catheter tip is not used
      for meeting NHSN criteria, there is only one
      positive blood culture for Aerococcus , a
      CSC. Therefore patient does not meet
•   Does the baby meet criteria for CSEP?
    • No. A positive blood culture is not
      included in the CSEP criteria (blood culture
      not done, or no growth).
                Case 7

• What if both cultures were positive for
  Staphylococcus aureus?
  • LCBI-Criteria 1- 1 blood culture positive for
    pathogen (catheter tip still not used)
             Case 8
Baby girl Jones is born at 35
weeks and weighs 1200 grams at
birth. An infusion line is placed
into her umbilical vein after
admission to the NICU. 2 days
after birth, her core temperature
drops to 35° C, she is diagnosed
with sepsis and started on
antibiotics. A single blood culture
is drawn and returns positive for
Candida albicans 2 days later.
            Case 8
Is the criteria for a lab confirmed
bloodstream infection met?
–   Yes. LCBI Criterion 1- Pathogen
    recovered from blood.
If her blood culture had been
negative, would the criteria for
clinical sepsis be met?
–   Yes
What would be assigned as a
–   CSEP has no identified pathogen
                    Case 8
What criteria would be met if blood
cultures had been drawn on Day 2
and Day 3 and both were positive
for S. epidermidis with the same
–       LCBI Criterion 3:
    •     Patient 1 year or younger,
    •     Hypothermia
    •     CSC from 2 or more matching blood
          cultures on separate occasions
                  Case 9
6/4-49 year old diabetic patient admitted in
diabetic coma. Patient with left foot with painful
swollen, red and warm to touch, but without
drainage. Subclavian line inserted in E.R. Patient
admitted to MICU. Temp 37.8°C. Antibiotics
begun for “cellulitis”
6/6 Temp 38.2°C. Hypotension. Blood cultures x 2
sets collected.
6/7 Staph aureus cultured from blood x2.
                       Case 9

Does this patient have an BSI?

Yes- pathogen recovered from blood culture.

Collecting Summary Data
NHSN Protocol for the collection of
device-associated infection
 – Patient Days: at the same time
   every day count the number of
   patients on the unit
 – Device Days: at the same time
   every day, count the number of
   patients with one or more devices
   (pt with >2 gets counted as 1)
Collecting Summary Data
Data collected differs according to
 – SCAs:
    • # pts.with permanent central lines
    • # pts with temp central lines
    • Pts with both count only temp line
 – NICUs: stratified by birthweight
    • # pts with central line
    • # pts with umbilical line
    • Pts with both count only umbilical line
